Happy New Year! And thanks to everyone who entered the Sriracha Haiku Contest on Facebook and Twitter! It was tough to pick the winners, but after careful selection and laughing my ass off at lots of great little odes to the almighty rooster sauce, I had to choose the favs.
The four winners (two from Facebook entries, and two from Twitter) will be receiving an autographed advance copy of The Sriracha Cookbook! For everybody else, it will be coming out exactly two weeks from today — January 18th!!
And now, for the winning Sriracha haikus:
dull frozen pizza
a visit from the rooster
now gourmet delight // Ed Chambers
bereaved with sadness
when my cock sauce is barren
aching for the burn // Joanna McWhorter
want oral pleasure
guaranteed ‘happy ending’
produce the cock sauce // Russ Carr (@DocOrlando70)
Sriracha on all
Better going in than out
From my bum, fire comes // Justin Stanley (@nerdliness)
Again, congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered! Viva la Sriracha!!
Enter to win an advance copy of The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 Rooster Sauce Recipes That Pack a Punch, autographed by the author! While the rest of the world waits until its publication on January 18, YOU can get yours early!
I’m looking for clever, creative haikus all about Sriracha! Your haiku must be an original composition, and should have three lines, each containing a certain number of syllables: five, seven, and five, respectively.
steamed rice bowl boring
apply sriracha heavy
